KAJANG, February 16, 2024 – The National Anti-Drugs Agency (NADA) has launched the Calender for the Celebration of Peringatan Hari Antidadah 2024 at the NADA Headquarter Auditorium, Kajang on Friday.

The Peringatan Hari Antidadah 2024 Celebration aims to be a reminder for the Malaysian community. It also strengthens the commitment and responsibility of every party involved in battling drug threats, other than fostering collaboration among various entities including government agencies, private sectors, and non-government organisations (NGOs), as well as leaders in holistic drug prevention efforts.

According to the Director General of NADA, Tuan Sutekno Ahmad Belon, a strong fortress of self-defence must begin at home and this demands sacrifices as well as continuous efforts from the family to make sure that the fortress remains strong.
